PROCEEDINGS UNDER THE PACKERS AND STOCKYARDS ACT 

Docket No. 311. — In re L. B. Andrews Livestock Commission Co. et al., Kansas 
City, Mo. The Secretary of Agriculture issued an order on June 14, 1933, 
prescribing reasonable rates and charges to be observed by respondents for their 
services as market agencies. The validity of this order is in question in a case 
now pending in the Supreme Court of the United States. Petitioners, members 
of the Kansas City Livestock Exchange, have filed a petition with the Secretary 
of Agriculture alleging that substantial changes have occurred since 1931, the 
year on which the order was based, and asking for a modification of the rates. 
In support of these allegations petitioners have submitted exhibits setting out 
statistical information relating to costs and expenses. On the basis of the facts 
set forth in the petition, the Secretary, on October 14, 1937, issued an order 
prescribing new rates to be charged from November 1, 1937, to April 30, 1938, 
and for such time thereafter as the Secretary may need for the consideration of 
reports to be filed by the agencies showing results of the application of the modified 
rates. 

Docket No. 708. — In re Leo Schloss, Inc., Newark, N. J. The Secretary of 
Agriculture on March 13, 1937, issued an inquiry alleging that respondent had 
violated the Packers and Stockyards Act in that he had engaged in and used an 
unfair, unjustly discriminatory, and deceptive practice and device in connection 



1937] SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS 119 

with the handling of livestock in commerce. A hearing was held on August 9. 
The examiner's report, including findings of fact, proceedings, and proposed order, 
was submitted on September 13 and respondent was allowed 20 days within which 
to file exceptions and request an oral argument. No exceptions were filed and 
no oral argument requested. On October 20 the respondent was ordered to cease 
and desist from the unfair, unjustly discriminatory, and deceptive practice and 
device complained of. 

Docket No. 754- — In re H. D. Beal and Son, Big Spring, Tex., v. Wertheimer 
Cattle Co., South St. Paul, Minn. Complainant sought an award of damages 
against respondent in the sum of $27,120.62, by reason of respondent's failure 
and refusal to pay said sum of money as the balance due on the agreed purchase 
price of 647 head of cattle which complainant sold to respondent on December 1, 
1936, and delivered to it on December 10. A hearing was held on May 17, 1937. 
The examiner's report, including recommended findings of fact, conclusions, and 
order, was submitted to respondent on August 12. No exceptions were filed. 
From all the evidence, the Secretary finds that complainant is entitled to an 
award of damages; therefore, on October 20 the Wertheimer Cattle Co. was 
ordered to pay, on or before November 15, 1937, to H. D. Beal and Son and any 
person holding a recorded lien upon the cattle on December 10, 1936, the sum of 
$27,120.62, with interest at 6 percent from December 10, 1936, until paid. 

Docket No. 849. — In re Schonzeit & Co., New York, N. Y. The Acting Secretary 
of Agriculture on June 10, 1937, ordered that a hearing be held to allow the 
applicant an opportunity to show cause why its application for a license to buy, 
sell, and handle live poultry in commerce should not be denied. On the date and 
hour fixed in said order for a hearing, no one appeared on behalf of the respondent. 
The Government accountant testified that he had communicated with Charles 
Schonzeit, one of the members of applicant company, and had been informed 
that he had purchased his partner's interest in the firm and would cease operations, 
therefore, his application for a license could be considered abandoned. On 
October 4, 1937, the case was dismissed. 

Docket No. 897. — In re Getz Poultry & Egg Corporation v. Julius Kastein, Inc. 
Jt appears that the matters and differences between the above-mentioned parties 
have been compromised, adjusted, and settled, and complainant has requested 
that it be permitted to withdraw the complaint; therefore, on October 22, 1937, 
the case was dismissed. 

Docket No. 909.— The Fort Worth Poultry & Egg Co. on September 23, 1937, 
made and filed a petition for severance, which motion was denied on October 12. 
Swift & Co. on October 1 made and filed six motions for the dismissal of the com- 
plaint, alleging separate grounds in each motion. These motions were denied on 
October 14. The Fort Worth Poultry & Egg Co. on October 4 made and filed 
a motion to dismiss the complaint, which was denied on October 15. Wilson & 
Co. on October 4 made and filed a motion for severance, which was denied on 
October 15. Armour & Co. on October 4 made and filed two motions to dismiss 
the complaint, separate allegations being made in each motion, which were denied 
on October 15. The Fort Worth Poultry & Egg Co. on October 4 made and filed 
a motion to render complaint more definite and certain in respect to the matters 
pointed out therein. This motion was denied on October 15. The Western 
Produce Co., Inc., and the Amarillo Poultry & Egg Co. on October 4 made and 
filed a motion for severance, which was denied on October 15. 

Docket No. 988. — In re Lincoln Poultry Mart, Chicago, 111. The Secretary of 
Agriculture on September 14, 1937, ordered that a hearing be held to allow appli- 
cant an opportunity to show cause why its application for a license under title V 
of the Packers and Stockyards Act should not be denied. The hearing was held 
on September 20. As the applicant is no longer handling live poultry in com- 
merce, the case was dismissed on October 28.

ST. LOUIS DESIGNATED AS LIVE-POULTRY MARKET TO COME UNDER UNITED STATES 

SUPERVISION 

St. Louis, Mo., has been designated as a live-poultry market subject to Federal 
supervision under the provisions of title V of the Packers and Stockyards Act. 
The order, which was signed by the Secretary of Agriculture on October 4, 1937, 
states that on and after November 19, 1937, all persons or firms in St. Louis 
engaged in the marketing of live poultry in interstate commerce are required to 
hold a license signed by the Secretary. This market will, after the effective date, 
be placed on the same basis as the seven other markets which have been desig- 
nated as live-poultry markets subject to the provisions of the Packers and Stock- 
yards Act as amended. The new order is the outcome of a recent public hearing, 
of investigations by the Department, and of other evidence showing the need and 
desirability of Federal supervision over live-poultry marketing in St. Louis.
